Event description

Description

*Registration from 9.30am.

NDS invites disability service providers in the Wimmera South West region to attend the third NDIS Warrnambool Readiness Workshop: Towards Implementation. Come together once more to explore practical actions you can undertake to ready your organisation for the NDIS.

This session will provide:

  • Up-to-date news from key agencies, including; NDS, NDIA, DHHS and the Local Area Coordinator (LAC), Latrobe Community Health Services.
  • An extended Panel Q and A session with key agency representatives.
  • A comprehensive overview of essential NDIS Operations including Service Agreements, Service Bookings, Interpreting the Price Guide and Payment and Assurance.
  • An opportunity to network with your peers across the sector.

Developing Service Agreements

The NDIA predicates that Service Agreements must be created between NDIS registered providers and NDIS participants in order to provide services. This short workshop will give an overview of the critical elements that need to be included in Service Agreements, explore how they can be made accessible and share good practice examples of Service Agreements and Schedules of Support.

Utilising the NDIS Price Guide

This extended session will guide organisations on how to interpret and utilise the new NDIS Price Guide. It will demonstrate how organisations can most effectively use NDIS language, familiarise service providers with the CSV Price Guide, and workshop how you claim for correct funds from interpreting participant plans.

Payment and Assurance - Reporting and Evidence Collection

The need to ensure evidence is collected prior to claiming for funded supports is one of the many operational changes required under the NDIS. This part of the session will explore innovative ways of documenting supports for payment and assurance purposes, flexible ways of working with your participants and the importance of tracking outcomes.

Service Agreement Variation Process

At the end of the day, DHHS will run a one hour workshop on the Service Agreement Variation process. This workshop is targeted at organisations who currently receive DHHS funding, and seeks to explain how this funding will be effected as participants transition over onto the NDIS.

Registration

NDS recommends strategic leaders within disability service organisations are most suited to attend including; CEOs, CFOs, HR managers, team leaders and other strategic/organisational managers as appropriate.

Accessibility

This venue is wheelchair accessible. Please contact the organiser directly with any accessibility requirements.
